Debby is Weaker, Moving AwayJune 25th, 2012 at 3:18 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
From the FOX 10 STORMtracker Doppler Radar Center… Tropical Storm Debby is slowly moving to the NE at 4 mph in the Gulf of Mexico off Apalachicola, Fl this afternoon. As of 1pm, Debby was located at 29.0N, 85.2W with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. The storm is much weaker today. All Tropical Storm Warnings in our area have been canceled.
The storm is expected to move slowly to the east and make landfall on the west coast of Florida. With this track, the threat to our area will remain much lower.
T.S. Debby is a fairly large system and we will see some impacts here regardless of the exact track. There is a high risk of rip currents along the beaches. Tides are now running about one foot above normal. If you have pictures you’d like to share, send them to ReportIt@fox10tv.com but remember safety first.
